Le Pergole Torte Montevertine 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

"Class in a glass. Dark ruby color. Aromas of blackberries, mineral, grilled meat follow through to a full-bodied, very tight tannin structure, with a chewy finish...93." WS 7/00.

MONTEVERTINE lies within the heart of the Chianti hills, in the community of Radda at an altitude of 425 m above sea level. Documents show that the site has been dwelled since the 11th century. Traces of the original construction, which undoubtedly was of defensive nature and which later on had been converted to a rural housing, are still preserved. Our wine-making procedure is extremely traditional and it has been never been varied since the very first vintage. The grapes are harvested by hand and then fermented in glazed cement vats, without temperature control, and the must is topped up twice daily in order to keep the top marc moist and to obtain a slow extraction of the tannins from the skins. After the racking off, the malolactic fermentation is also carried out using cement vats. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, our wines are stored in wooden barrels over a period of approximately two years.The wines will never be filtered and the topping-up method, without any pumps, is used for the bottling. For the ageing of our wines we use oak barrels from Slavonia with a 5.5 to 18 hectolitre capacity and 225 litre Allier casks. Read less

The nose started out quick slowly with notes of cooked red fruits, dusty earthy tones and fresh leather notes. This may very well have just been closed but it wasn’t giving much this evening On the palate this is shows a lack of depth married to a rather aggressive structure. The mid-palate reveals some nice, spicy red currant fruit but lacks detail. The feel of the wine is very smooth, and while there is adequate acidity, the wine lacks a certain amount of vibrancy. 88pts

Had a bottle of this at Xmas that I had kept from 2001 Big disappointment. No lenght little aroma and not much of a texture. This is my first Pergole to fail and reach its normal brilliance
